BIOX is a registered supplier of Compliance Units in both Canada and the U.S.. Our Compliance Units are available in accordance to these mandates:
Our biodiesel meets and exceeds the most demanding standards for Canada, the U.S. and the E.U. to deliver the highest degree of compliance. A variety of feedstocks - from animal fats, used cooking oils, to pure seed oils - can be used with no change to the production process. The types of feedstocks we choose for each production facility are based on both local access to supplies, and how compliance is measured: volumetrically and/or based on carbon intensity score. This strategy enables us to provide a steady and reliable supply of specific types of biodiesel with a range of Carbon Intensities to meet a customer's specific compliance requirements with the lowest costs possible.
Biodiesel in both pure and blended forms work with existing diesel engines without modifications, making it an immediate, viable and low-cost solution to reduce Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) emissions from the growing transportation sector.
As a by-product of biodiesel production, BIOX's glycerin goes through a strict refining process to reach over 98% purity. Since it is nontoxic to human health and environment, there are a wide variety of new and established uses for BIOX's refined glycerin in industrial applications.
Bioheavies are by-products of the biodiesel distillation process. As feedstocks are converted into methyl esters, about 94%-98% meet ASTM and EN standards for biodiesel; the balance consists of a lower grade form of methylester which is an excellent and cheaper blendstock for lower grades of petroleum distiallates.
As the remaining from the refine process of pure glycerin, glycerin pitch is comprised of some residual glycerin and a high percent of impurities. It can be used as an efficient renewable carbon resource for the biosynthesis of novel yellow pigment, and other innovative chemistry processes such as anaerobic digestion to produce more renewable sources of energy.
